The Era of the 28-Gauge

Modern Pioneer - - Hunting/shooting -

The 28-gauge dates to 1903 when in­fa­mous Amer­i­can shot­gun man­u­fac­turer Parker Bros. of­fered it as an op­tion for its double-bar­reled shot­guns. Over time, this gauge has sur­vived the tests of time largely be­cause the skeet shoot­ers rolled it into their four-gauge com­pe­ti­tions: 12, 20 and 28 gauges and the .410 bore. Un­til now, its ef­fec­tive use as a hunt­ing shot­gun has, in my opin­ion, been lim­ited to smaller game­birds like doves, quail and par­tridge. The new 3-inch ver­sion opens up great new pos­si­bil­i­ties for hunt­ing larger gamebird species.
